How We Advocate For You

The Social Security Administration is governed by complicated rules and regulations.  To understand these rules and regulations, you need to speak the language of the SSA.  In California and across the country, the SSA denies more than half (about 65%) of all initial applications for disability benefits. Requests for Reconsideration, the first level of appeal, are denied at an even higher rate (about 85%).  We understand how important it is to present a claim correctly from the outset, and your chances of obtaining benefits improve with the help of an experienced disability attorney. You do not have to go it alone. George Heppner and Aline Gaba, the experienced Social Security disability lawyers at the San Diego Disability Law Group, can help.
